i went ask some details about how to get a dedicated forum, and it's not as easy as i thought it would be.
Quoting an admin: "It is selected by popular demand and by the level of development that exists for a device. If, for example, a large amount of development threads for a device are created in a remotely related device forum or the general section, chances are very high a dedicated device forum will be created and the existing threads will be moved there.".
So before we can get a dedicated forum, it looks like some devs will have to show interest into the Y700. Not sure how we can proceed with that and get visibility. I thought it would go the other way around -> an existing dedicated forum would attract devs. :confused:

I have flashed a lot of GSI on this tablet so far.
Here is a summary of the bugs and other issues that I have noticed in them.
※All of them are Android 12L except for the ones without special notes.

①Corvus OS, Descendant OS...Lock screen does not rotate. Probably because it is based on Google Pixel ROM. Corvus also does not have face unlock.
②Ancient OS(Android 12.0)...Lock screen does not turn to landscape. Also, when I change the username or photo at the top of the settings, the settings app crashes. Also note that the settings app crashes if you change the username or photo above the settings.
③Proton AOSP...When I restarted to set up Magisk, the settings app repeatedly stops. Deleting app data and cache had no effect.
④Havoc OS(Android 11)...The startup logo does not appear in the first place and comes back to the bootloader.
⑤Superior OS...It started, but the FPS dropped extremely. I judged that it is difficult to use regularly.
⑥Pixel Experience…The screen is still not landscape. Also, it seems that it is not optimized for tablets any more than Descendant, and when I call the dock while launching an app(the feature of 12L), the icon looks like it has been split in half.
⑦All of NipponGSI...Like Havoc OS, it comes back to the bootloader. It may be a bad compatibility.
⑧Lineage OS…There was a switch "Rotate lock screen" in the settings. But I don't use it, because the "su" binary is still in the root file and can't delete it ,so interferes with SafetyNet.
⑨Arrow OS...This also allows the lock screen to be turned landscape and is also very light. Although the lack of face unlock is a demerit (LSPosed module didn't work→https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/11-universalauth-face-unlock-for-all-roms.4419343/).But there are few complaints for me. So I'm using it regularly.

I'm sorry if it's hard to read because I'm not good at English. Thank you.
So basically the only problem with Lineage OS GSI is the presense of the "su" binary? I'm just confirming, because for me SafetyNet is not something I need, and if it's breakage is the only drawback, then LineageOS seems like a best option out of all.

holy crap. you fixed everything! true genius. i bow down to you.

does the refresh rate feel like 60hz to you? it could be in my head but it doesn't feel as smooth as before.. or is it in my head
I have the exact same issue where I've had bootloop and followed the same instructions but was unfortunately not able to get out of the bootloop following the steps you followed.

Any tips?

Finally some gray imports has entered the market in my region. But so expensive. After the price is subtracted with sales tax, it's still Around 100 usd more expensive than the MSRP in China.

I dont know if this is allowed, but i'm selling my custom rom Y700 up on US ebay if you guys want one with all the notifications and everything working properly. I've moved on and gotten a bigger tablet for my gaming needs (ipad), selling it for cheaper than i paid for it. you can get it in 2-3 days instead of waiting to get delivered from China which can take a month.

Its the only one for sale on Ebay right now, so i wont even have to link it to anyone, just search it up. i'll remove this when it sells.
Someone must have bought it already. I already have an iPad Mini 6, but I want to buy a Y700 because I hate iOS. Is the main issue with the stock ZUI the notifications being inconsistent? I'd rather keep it stock for the desktop mode if it's usable.

I still see one, an 8GB/128GB model from the UK, currently one person bidding on it (not me, as mine is being somehere between China and Belgium as we speak).

Edit: yeah it just sold yesterday!
for me the notifications just straight up weren't showing on most apps like fb messenger and Whatsapp which of course are pretty crucial time sensitive. yeah I lost desktop mode and now the gaming switch doesn't work, but what I gain is an actually usable OS

It is annoying to not get the notifications, but I find notifications on iOS to already be not usable. I'll probably just do what I did on my iPad Mini and mute all notifications and just rely on my phones. I'm getting pretty close to buying one since they got a little discount on Giztop ATM.

i wonder whether lenovo didnt expect this to be such a seller in china. so they no longer have enough SD870 stock for a global version.

Nice, I'm in Netherlands. Did you buy on Giztop? I'm a little worried that VAT may hit pretty hard.
I have bought from AliExpress from "Mi and Lenovo Laptop Store" store. It did take them a long while to ship (4 weeks + 2 days of DLH delivery to Brussels), but i now have it in my hands. It's very snappy tablet.
I paid 647€ and they declared 110€ for the customs, even i asked that they declare more than that. So i had to pay only 35€ for customs in the end.
So all in all, 682€ total. Not cheap, but i really wanted that tablet for its specs and especially for its form factor.

probably bad grounding?
No idea, but if there was something like a bad grounding, it would be in the tablet i would assume, as i have zero issues with my work laptop (a Dell one) and my personal Surface Pro 7 using the same display connected with USB C.

Btw, using adb, it seems the tablet is responding to commands, but it's not authorized, so no way to run an adb reboot command of anything like that. If anyone has an idea on how to bypass that, i'm taking it. Unfortunately Google didn't help me much as all of what i found was instructing to authorize adb debug from within the tablet first, but since mine doesn't boot anymore, i'm stuck.

    I bought one from Giztop to Croatia (EU). Got it without any additional import taxes or fees. 550$ for 12GB/256GB model and 30$ for shipping. Arrived in two weeks time, so far everything works.

    Hello, any TWRP port for y700?
    Thank you

    Concerning notifications, the system security app has an autostart manager, where the user can whitelist apps. I used to have login problems with accounts not being recognized for installed games, but after whitelisting the play store, everything is fine...also receiving update notifications. I'm not using social media apps so I can't comment on those.

    Finally unlocked my y700 and installed crDroid 8.6 ROM. So far everything seems to work including Google apps, backup, homescreen and lockscreen rotation. Even face unlock. Oh yes, and notifications do work . Only feature that doesn't work is auto brightness. You also lose Lenovo game mode and use of side button. Google identifies as pixel 6 pro. Thanks to author of Japanese article and gunalarix8 for posting.
